Traditional and adventurous works delighting sight and touch.
The tradition of fiber arts in Western Pennsylvania is long and vibrant. So are bold alternatives to tradition. Growing and harvesting fibers, dying and spinning yarns, weaving and knitting fabrics, constructing and sewing garments and displays are part of our heritage and our future vision. The “Fiber Friends” among our local artists have put together an exhibition of dyed, woven, knit and sewn splendor.
Works fill the gallery with pieces that delight the eye and hand. A visit to the gallery will display life’s array of texture, color, rhythm and form. Depending on how you view them, they can express loss, love, courage, and determination. And among this collection of very human creators there’s certainly humor and whimsy.
